The 37-year-old will endorse the companyâ€™s high-end laser rangefinders â€“ the Pinmaster II and Pinmaster II Pro â€“ after meeting with Leica product manager for golf, Julian Burczyk, at the recent BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
â€œI met Lee last year during the Porsche European Open Pro-Am and was impressed by his game, personality, attitude and attention to detail,â€ said Burczyk. â€œAs a premium brand, these fundamental qualities appeal to us greatly. Leica constantly strives for excellence in design and performance, so the partnership with Lee is the perfect fit for us.â€
As well as using the Leica Pinmaster II Pro rangefinder on the course, Slattery will also record his activities on the European Tour with a Leica Q digital camera and will share images on Leicaâ€™s social media channels, giving the public a great insight into life on tour.
â€œNaturally, I feel extremely privileged to be representing Leica, a brand which is globally recognised as the leader in the field of cameras, lenses and sport optics,â€ said Slattery. â€œI am very much looking forward to sharing my life on tour through Leica.â€
